    "Top of the Line - most reliable"

    August 31, 2008  |   By kurtodavis

    Version: Avant Browser 11.5 build 21

    Pros

    Avant is my most reliable browser. It is fast simple and never seems to crash or freeze - i run to it when IE gives me crap (usually the 1st to bite the bullet) or Firefox stubbornly refuses to co-operate; and it has never failed me yet

    Cons

    hmmm i can't think of a con. this is a brilliant browser

    Summary

    You have to get this browser. it never fails. it is the most reliable thing i have found online. and it is quick and easy to maneouvre. i also see it is easy to customise, and very user-friendly. I especially like how u can see the page loading status in the address bar at the top of the page and in the tabs being loaded while ur elsewhere in the browser. Avant is the hero browser in my books.

    "OUTSTANDING!"

    August 29, 2008  |   By The_Wizard_of_OZ

    Version: Avant Browser 11.5 build 21

    Pros

    The browser is very customizable, very fast, uses the same underlaying prsentation foundation as IE - but significantly faster and less memory required - like the skinning features!

    Cons

    Strange setup in the search engine area - overcame that - but a newbie would have trouble here.

    Summary

    Like the ability to re-open last pages after closing and recovery when it doesn't shut down gracefully. Find that it loads pages way faster than IE, Firefox and even Opera - a tough competitor - great for a computer literate person. Like the AVANT options in addition to the Internet options from IE. I have been using AVANT for quite a few months now and I have no intention of switching back to full blown IE, Firefox or Opera (Just use them to test my webpages for display issues). AVANT is and will remain my default browser.

    No comparison to Firefox please.

    "Not for Vista"

    March 15, 2008  |   By Lord_Glorfindel

    Version: Avant Browser 11.5 build 21

    Pros

    It is without exception, the very best browser I have ever seen. I am forced to use Firefox with Vista which leaves so much to be desired after using Avant.

    Cons

    I used Avant for a few years with XP but it will not work consistently over IE7 and WinVista Premium and the Avant people say they can't do anything about it. IE7 keeps stealing links even from within Avant when it is running. And it is set as default browser. Microsoft has again rigged one of their apps (IE7) to not allow use of anything else with VIsta.

    "great interface and surfing capabilities"

    March 11, 2008  |   By carecamd

    Version: Avant Browser 11.5 build 21

    Pros

    Mouse shortcuts, easy to use. Upgrading is constantly enhancing your surfing. I download it into EVERY machine I use.

    Cons

    It started out with Google as its search engine, but then traden in for Alta Viasta, ahich I didn't enjoy, because we all know of Google's excellence, and Alta Vista must catch up with years of head start y Google (I'm not a Google employee or share holder).

    "After all the years using Avant, it still just makes me happy. It's easy."

    March 9, 2008  |   By Ace_One

    Version: Avant Browser 11.5 build 21

    Pros

    This browser has just made the internet seem enjoyable to me. Anyone who is looking for a browser that is good for basically all internet activity, should pick this thing up and just tinker around with it for a little while--I am sure you will most likely have a hard time letting it go after giving it some time in regular use. The updating system is very good and simple. The skinning is basically good and very easy to change. I am just wasting words here...I think it is best to just take this one for a real spin around the internet. Enjoy!

    Cons

    Third-party plugs almost never work with it, but, this could be just on my pc (XP-Pro, 3.2gighert P4, 1gig RAM, More than enough HDspace). However, the things that do not work on this browser are just superfluous when you truly look at their usefullness. That, for me, is all I can say against it.
